Many Thanks and Christmas Wishes
We have been so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love that we have received in the past few weeks. The blog comments, emails, cards, flowers, meals, thoughts, and prayers sent our way have meant more than anyone can possibly know. We cannot thank you enough. We are completely heartbroken over the loss of our son and only time will make us whole again but your support and love have helped to lessen our pain in this difficult time. You are incredible people. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you – really and truly, thank you so much.
It is our Christmas wish that each of you will look with fresh eyes on the treasure you have in your loved ones and take the time to show them how much they mean to you this season. If you have children, look into their eyes and remember what an incredible gift it is to be able to do even just that. When we look at all of the simple things we take for granted every day, it becomes so obvious how rich our lives really are and that every Christmas season is a wonderful one, no matter what. May you all have a beautiful and blessed Christmas.
